Remember that it is not about QUANTITY when it comes to getting conditioned; it’s about QUALITY. If you get thru your workout in 30-45 minutes, good! It doesn’t mean you need to add more sets or more exercises just to “get your time in.”
The absolute best thing you can do when it comes to burning fat and putting on muscle is get in, work hard, then get the heck home and let your body create what I call the HORMONAL SOUP… a hormonal response to training that will have you burning fat like a furnace and putting on muscle like nobody’s business AFTER your workout.
I like to explain it this way: Cardio sessions (i.e. walking on the treadmill or going for a run) are great, but you’re only burning fat DURING the session. On the other hand, when you CONDITION (mix your weight training up with exercises that really get your heart rate up, too) like we do here at Conditioned byKelly Tekin™, you are burning fat AFTER the workout. You are burning fat for the 48 hours AFTER THE WORKOUT. Some studies have even shown up to 72 hours of fat burning after the workout. Now, I don’t know about you, but I want to burn fat all day and all night long; NOT just during my workout!
Just something to keep in mind…
